Structural Engineering Traveling Fellowship
This Fellowship aims to foster an appreciation of the aesthetic potential inherent in the structural design of both buildings and bridges along with other major works of architecture and engineering. In this way, the Fellowship will encourage an awareness of visual impact among engineering students and their schools. It will also help to strengthen the connection between aesthetics and efficiency, economy, and innovation in structural design.
The $10,000 Fellowship is awarded annually to a student who is graduating with a Bachelor degree, Master degree, or PhD in structural engineering. By enabling the Fellow to experience buildings, bridges and other structures first hand, the Foundation’s hope is that the Fellowship will help the student to gain a critical appreciation of the aesthetics of structure, thus influencing the teaching and practice of structural engineering in the future.
Interested students should contact the Dean/Chair/Director of their departments. Nomination packages are mailed to the schools in late September/October, nominations are due in November and submissions are due in mid-January.
